I had a bottle of Walgreen's Skin Bracer knockoff (not bad) and some Pinaud Lime Sec (meh). Neither one impressed me as much as I'd hoped. So in a spare container I mixed them about 60/40 with a little witch hazel thrown in.
Gotta tell ya, to my nose the result was a vast improvement over the components alone. You can still smell both distinctly but they really seemed to match each other well. The limey-menthol kick in the face right after a shave is a plus, too, and the Skin Bracer/witch hazel combo seemed to remove much of the alcohol burn of the Pinaud. Which is a good thing.
Anybody else do something like this, just to see what the heck you might end up with?
